So what are the boiler issues that commonly pop up? And how can you find the right solution? Well, here at Charter Heating, we are leading boiler, heating and gas experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about common boiler issues and how to resolve them.
Boiler issues and how to resolve them
So what are the most common boiler problems? And what can you do about them? Well, there are several, including:
- No heating/hot water- often just one or the other will be lost, and this could be an issue with the boiler thermostat not reading correctly, or a lack of water pressure. If each of these are fine, you should speak to a professional, as a valve or other part could have broken.
- A boiler leak- If you see water coming from your boiler you will need to switch it off immediately, to prevent damaging the electronic components, or the rest of your home. This is a key sign that an internal component has failed, so contact the professionals immediately.
- Pilot light change- a change in the pilot light can mean a range of things, so you should consult your owners manual. However, a pilot light turning orange or yellow could indicate poor combustion and you should switch off your boiler immediately. In this case, you could be at risk of a gas leak, so get in touch with a professional team like us, here at Charter Heating, immediately.
